Fabien Duperry is fast becoming a bit of a legend, and his wines transcend the terroirs he works with in Beaujolais and the Mâconnais. I visited him a few years back and was really impressed. This Pouilly-Loché was lovely.
Jules Desjourneys Pouilly-Loché 2017 Bourgogne, France
12.5% alcohol. Complex nose of toast, nuts and minerals, with a lovely stony, matchstick mineral streak to the fine citrus fruit. The palate is fresh and linear with a touch of grapefruit under the lemony fruit, with good concentration, intensity and brightness on the finish. There’s a lovely mineral nervosity here: it’s Mâcon taken to its terroir-expressive height offering the sort of precision not often found here. 94/100
